Chris Barber

guest musician
Chris’ tracking sessions are a masterclass in their own right. He’s a world-class drummer, talented musician and humble human.

With over 10 years of professional live and studio experience, Chris has toured all over the world playing for bands such as ‘Crazy Town’ ‘Empires Fade’ and ‘Fast Car To Florence’, to name a few. He has worked on countless studio projects including the soundtrack to the Indian film ‘Johaar’ released in 2020. Chris specializes in Rock & Pop but is extremely genre-versatile, and can give advice on production and mixing drums. He can work with pretty much any form of material and doesn’t need a chart to follow, although having some form of instructions i.e. Basic song structure and ideas certainly helps.

Audio sounds great. Performance is awesome. Chris is an amazing drummer. There should be a mechanism to tip the musicians for a great job.

I had a session with Chris and it was fantastic as usual! I feel like I can go way out there with meter changes and complex elements and the Musiversal musicians just nail it every time. It's encouraging me to push further in my own writing! Thank you!!!

I enjoyed working with Chris Barber. He was very professional and even worked around a snag I didn't catch at the end of my song. I was pretty embarrassed but it didn't phase him at all. Thanks so much!

Chris's files always sound great and his performance is always spot on so It makes the drums easy to mix and doesn't require any editing.
